Liberal co-hosts of radio show 'The Pursuit of Happiness', motivational speaker and psychotherapist commit suicide - no hope after all

Lynne Rosen and John Littig were found dead Monday in their Park Slope home. As a psychotherapist Rosen, 46, and motivational speaker Littig, 48, were in the business of telling people how to live.

Lynne Rosen was a psychotherapist who co-hosted the show ‘The Pursuit of Happiness’ with ‘motivational speaker’ John Littig. The Brooklyn couple committed suicide together last week.

Lynne Rosen and John Littig, who were found dead on a couch in the living room of their Park Slope apartment, left behind two notes, police said Wednesday.

“We’re going to do this together,” was the gist of Littig’s note, sources said.

Littig said, without explanation, that he could not watch his wife suffer any more.

“Her note basically said she was sorry for doing this,” a police source said. “We believe she had some psychological problems.”

Until their decomposing bodies were found Monday, the couple had been best known as the hosts of a self-help radio show on WBAI-FM.

Rosen, 46, was a psychotherapist. Littig, 48, was a motivational speaker and a musician. And for an hour every month, they took to the airwaves and doled out advice on how to be your best self.

“People get scared to make changes, right, and to step out of that comfort zone,” Rosen said on the April show.

“Alternatively, you can get comfortable with change,” Litting piped in.

(Apparently some change is too much, especially without Jesus.)

Rosen posted on her “Why Not Now?” website a video “rap” where she offered more advice.

“Remember, positivity is precious,” she counseled. “Try something spontaneous, sexually or otherwise.”

Littig was described on the site as a “motivational speaker, workshop facilitator and personal life coach.”

They used what’s described on the FDNY web site as “exit bags” to kill themselves. They are “fast becoming one of the most prescribed forms of Euthanasia worldwide,” the site says. “They are said to provide a fast, peaceful, undetectable death to those wishing to commit suicide.”

Joseph Brooks, the songwriter who composed “You Light Up My Life” which became a hit for Debby Boone, used the same kind of helium-filled bag to kill himself two years ago after he was accused of raping 13 women.
